My name is Kevin and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. As a highly skilled and trained therapist, I work with individuals, couples, and groups, taking a collaborative approach to the treatment of anxiety, depression, substance use/misuse, and overall relationship issues. In addition, I have a special interest in working with the LGBT community.
My approach draws upon Motivational, Psychodynamic, Dialectical and Interpersonal traditions. Subsequently, I believe what makes therapy most effective is the relational fit between the therapist and the client. I would describe myself as having an integrative approach, which varies and adapts to your unique needs, strengths, and goals for your therapy.
I obtained my Masters in Clinical Social Work from Columbia University in 2006. My undergraduate degree is from the University of California, Berkeley, where I studied Psychology.
I have completed several post-graduate training programs including a psycho-dynamic/analytic program at The Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and a group psychotherapy training program from The Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society (EGPS). I have also had additional training in Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy.
I am a member of both the National Association of Social Workers and the American Group Psychotherapy Association.
